Have lived in Kitchener for over 35 years and no one told me to try this restaurant. Shame on them. Had a pizza lunch which was excellent. The place was busy but the service kept up with our needs. I will be back.

On a cold winter night after seeing a movie with friends there is nothing better than a glass of wine and delicious warm homemade pasta! We were so surprised that on a Wednesday evening every table was taken. Luckily we had reserved in the morning!...More

Back for the first time since the renovations, restaurant decor now aligns with the great Italian food they serve. Atmosphere has moved to a cozy spot for a great meal. Pizza puff continues to be the lunchtime favourite. Cafe latte and espressos were a great...More

Went out with another couple last Friday and had a fabulous meal. I ordered the house special pasta, it was wonderful. Our friends sampled the Veal Parmisian and loved it. We ordered a Valopolicelo Ribaso, which was super. All in all a great time. It...More
